Heather says: ‘Attending the 2012 ICA Congress seemed a good way for me to obtain more international strategic thinking about my profession. The programme looks good and should provide a unique opportunity to gain fresh knowledge and develop effective management skills. The bursary support helps make the visit to Brisbane possible’.
